Spiritual Gathering Retreat – Christian Retreat Locations, Church Group Events
Fellowship is a high priority for any religious group, and each type of organized fellowship activity comes with its own planning considerations. Whether you’re setting up a community service project, a weekend retreat, or a Sunday supper, here are some ideas to help plan religious group events.
If your religious group is performing a service project or hosting a fundraiser, keep costs low and be creative! Set up tables for registration or payment in the parking lot or on the lawn – or rent space at a community center or a park for minimal fees. Recruit volunteers to provide refreshments and transportation if necessary, and ask local businesses to pitch in supplies. They may even host an after-party at discount!
Consider planning spiritual retreats at a hotel, country inn, or religious conference center for easy access to meeting space, dining options, and overnight accommodations. If you’re organizing a family retreat, a college or summer camp may offer packages that include access to dorms, the dining hall, and athletic fields or equipment.
If your worship facilities can’t accommodate a Sunday supper, try to rent space from another nearby religious organization. You’ll definitely need a kitchen, but consider bringing tables and chairs to create a dining area outdoors or in a meeting room. Plan a menu that’s simple and inexpensive, and ask participants to bring dishes for a shared dessert table.
